News Releases

VANCOUVER, BC - Granite Creek Copper Ltd (“Granite Creek” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of up to 37.5 million units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.04 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $1,500,000 (the “Offering”).

Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant, with each Warrant entitling the holder to acquire one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.07 for a term of 24 months from the closing date of the Offering. 

The net proceeds from the financing will be used for general corporate purposes as well as the identification and advancement of strategic initiatives under review by the Company. 

President & CEO, Tim Johnson, stated, “Granite Creek has been actively reviewing several North American base and precious metals opportunities and, with recent strength returning to the market, recognizes this is an excellent time to make key additions to the Company’s critical minerals portfolio.”  

Closing of the Offering is anticipated to occur on or about March 20, 2024 (the “Closing Date”) and is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company has engaged Agentis Capital Mining Partners as financial advisor in connection with its review of its strategic initiatives. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the Closing Date. 

The Offering constitutes a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”), as insiders of the Company may subscribe for Common Share Units in the Offering. The Company relied on the exemptions in Section 5.5(b) – Issuer Not Listed on Specified Markets from the formal valuation requirements of MI 61-101 and relied on the exemption in Section 5.7(1)(a) – Fair Market Value Not More Than 25 Per Cent of Market Capitalization from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report at least 21 days before the expected closing date of the Offering, as the aforementioned insider participation had not been confirmed at that time and the Company wished to close the Offering as expeditiously as possible.

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of any of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful, including any of the securities in the United States of America. The Shares have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons, absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws.
